Shine has been known for its innovative 24k Gold rolling products. Innovation, creativity and quality are what we live for. As long time advocates and consumers paired with our place in the industry, we have the unique opportunity to have seen (and tested) pretty much everything there is available today.
Little do most people know is that we also hold a strong foundation in the luxury cigar market. We know cigars. We of course were no stranger to the typical tobacco products used currently. We always joked about how bizarre it was that, collectively, the market was primarily providing some of the lowest grade tobacco. More so, that consumers were using it to re wrap some of their finest green. We thought, You don’t take a Benz to Maaco for paint job, right? You wouldn’t pair a nice Bordeaux with McDonalds, right? They why would you wrap your finest product in something that belongs in the trash?
We decided then and there it was time for shine to provide a tobacco wrap product that was worthy of adorning a cup winning strain. We were going to give the people top tier product because no one else was.
Using our knowledge of premium cigars, we decided there was no other option besides Shade Leaf. Shade Leaf is typically reserved for the outer most wrapper (arguably the most important leaf on the cigar) of fine cigars. It is a thin leaf that tends to be cured to a very light hue. It gets its name from the cheese-cloth-like tarps that tent its fields. These tarps provide a balanced shaded environment that mimics natural shaded growing environments of that of the tropics. This shade allows for a thin leaf and a very mild flavor.
To provide a truly premium product we knew we needed to take it even further by hand selecting prime cuts of leaf, ensuring no holes, blemished or thick veins.
Each wrap comes pre-cut, no filler and binder tobacco to wastefully throw away. Just roll it up and light it. We even added a natural glue strip for easy sealing! We have flavored our wraps with Golden Honey and Double Cup flavors. Golden honey will provide you with a slight, sweet nectar flavor where as Double Cup provides a perfect combination of grape and lemon lime. Each, although rather fragrant when opened, have been fine tuned to a mellow combination. This allows the consumer to also enjoy the natural refined flavor of the tobacco itself.
Welcome to a whole new level, this is connoisseur grade.
